[ Musician/speaker/counsellor/teacher ]
Lucinda wrote her first song aged six and has been writing ever since. In 1994 she co wrote a number one hit The Real Thing for the artist Toni Di Bart.
1995 saw her sign to EMI publishing and EDEL records to create the album Suicidal Angel which was released to critical acclaim with the single I Said Hey receiving 6 weeks air play on Radio One.
To Be Loved from this album was remixed and became a huge New York underground hit in the gay clubs.
Then aged around 28 Lucinda began a serious spiritual journey. She started meditating regularly with an organisation called The Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University. This brought about a profound change in the music and she was dropped by her record and publishing company.
The new music had a different kind of message as the intention was to create a sound imbued with beauty and depth that could enhance spiritual awareness and transformation. Something the pop industry struggled with.
Her own transformation and experiences lead to the creation of the seminal album A Hundred Thousand Angels (written and produced with Andrew Blissett) which is played all over the world in many different contexts with the title song becoming a classic in the fields of healing and spirituality.
Lucinda is now invited all over the world to perform at gatherings of world leaders, at peace conferences and in numerous spiritual centres.
She has sung in The Albert Hall and Wembley Stadium, London, The Washington Press Office, The Pyramids in Mexico, The Agape Spiritual centre in LA, as well as venues across Australia India and Europe,
She has both sung and spoken in Prisons, Hospitals, Monastery s, Schools, Hospices and Village Halls
Lucinda sings from the heart to the heart and has recently completed her 9th album. Her work is dedicated to raising human awareness and her own personal journey has led her to train as a counsellor. Her motivation for doing this was to ensure that her work with people was safe and grounded. She is continually seeking to deepen her understanding of the human psyche and how to alleviate struggle and support people to suffer less
Lucinda is now in private practice in London and runs workshops all over the world. She is a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and is currently doing a post graduate qualification with REACH.
Lucinda is passionate about empowering the self and using meditation and music to access the divine. Her ability to create sacred space with her presence and her voice is powerful and yet accessible. Her journey continues

'You' can't get enough of this music. It has very special qualities like none other; truly inspired - Barry, Linlithgow.
I am the light (I am me)
The Road Least Travelled
Love song of a tiny flower
Being me (what if I was to start)
The gentle learn to fly
Beyond the reasoning mind
Love surrounds you
I will rise

The ability to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious. Wow I am learning so much about the power and quality of patience. As a natural hare ( fast person/muti tasker/dynamic/driven) I have had to learn how to slow down and manage the anxiety that drives me on-wards. I think
I am so lucky to work closely with people who really want to make changes in their lives. To stop repeating the same old patterns and make new choices. Ive noticed that the process begins with getting really honest. To stop pretending everything is ok and start being truthful, firstly with myself. It takes so
